Anti-Aliasing

Post by evilronin » Tue Jun 01, 2010 5:43 am

I love ConvertX, also got two of my friends to feel the same way. However, I do convert a few 4x3 dvd to 16x9 and pad the aspect ratio, and while I enjoy the ease to which ConvertX lets me do this, there are just a bunch of video aliasing everywhere, jagged edges galore. I know I might be asking too much and others might thing my priorities are a bit ridiculous, but ConvertX to DVD 5.0 should come with some anti-aliasing feature built in, either selectable or just a default, that would make ConvertXto DVD a perfect program for me. And well worth the money to dish out for an upgrade. Thanks.

Just out of curiousity, why do you want to end up with one large file after conversion? What do you plan to do with the converted video that you can't do with the existing converted files?

Joe, I hardly ever use ConvertX as an authoring software. I find it too restrictive in menus and submenus. So I try to get the best out of both worlds.

ConvertX does a very good and fast job (the best there is out there) for converting almost any type of movie file to VOB format, which is essentially mpeg 2, but split in a size to conform with DVD standards.

Using Boilsoft Video Joiner I then join the VOB files to get 1 mpeg 2 file which has the full requirements, (NTSC or PAL + the aspect ratio of 16:9 or 4:3).

I then use DVD Workshop to author the movie as DVD. With this software I am only restricted by immagination because I can do anything with it. Create my buttons from png drawings. Make my theme frames for the thumbnails. Edit animated backgrounds for menus. Link buttons to any menu or submenus I wish. Add audio to menus. In a few words I can produce a unique DVD with the theme I like.

Since the movie file will have the perfect specs. for DVD Workshop, it will not be transcoded again and all you will have to do is to set the way to be splited for chapters (by time or by scene)

This is a simple template I have constructed from scratch in a few minutes.

Not likely as it is not marketed outside Japan and it has huge restrictions, simply this one will leave most DVD players out:
AVCREC Part3 V1.0 requires that all players and recorders are able to play back MPEG-4 AVC video stream when the stream is recorded in the manner of "Transcode mode". According to BD-RE Part 3 V2.1, playback of such streams is only optional.[1]

I don't think VSO will add this as the "wheel" has already invented 100 times.
There are enough programs that can do this.

How about some time of Macro type option to convert multiple movies one right after another?

like all of them are using the same settings and after one gets converted, it starts on the next one in the list and so on.

Its called command line and is included within the program.
Read in the manual for all options.

There excist also a program called BatchXtoDVD what does the same but it seems that update/support has stopped by the creator. You can try if it still works with your OS.

Cmd line for batch conversions in this day and age :( i think it is about time vso added some type of queue system for convertx2dvd considering there is no more support for batchX2dvd plus it doesn't work on windows 7.

Title Menu

Post by Budda_357 » Thu Aug 05, 2010 12:37 pm

Hi, Guys
Whoops selected the new topic instead of reply.

Just a small one, the ability to select a 16:9 or 4:3 Title Screen would be nice.
Ok 4:3 is nearly dead but their are still plenty of old 4:TV sets yet

Hi

I`m not sure if this has been suggested before but it would be good if 7.1 support was added into
ConvertXtoDVD settings for those of us that have 7.1 sound systems.

It would be good as well if there was a way you could make a copy of the audio in a movie file
within ConvertXtoDVD and you can choose to convert the audio into a different format and
keep the original untouched.

For Example: Most 720p or 1080p movie file sources audio are in 5.1 DTS sound and as not all
sound systems are DTS compatible, and for compatibility with all sound systems, you have to
select the convert DTS to AC-3 in the ConvertXtoDVD setting but if it was possible to make a
copy of the audio so you have the original audio that is DTS and the copy there to convert
into ordinary 5.1 for best compatibilitay.
